Wintersong.....or some fun on iTunes


I saw this on The Wayward Episcopalian's blog, and thought it looked fun.

Here are two games to pass the time with your iTunes (or other music player) shuffle. One thing you can do with this is tag other people so they'll do it on their blogs or Facebook notes too, making it a meme. I'll tag five people on Facebook, and another five here (untagged folks are also welcome to play!). I tag IEG, Idaho Dad, Raymond Pert, Some Guy Who Blogs, and Nita Jo.

“Put your iPod/iTunes on shuffle. Write down the first lines of the first twenty songs to form a poem. Exclude instrumental pieces as needed. Like so:

Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Clouds part just to give us a little sun
It must have been moonglow
Oh the weather outside is frightful
If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning
O Bless The Lord the My Soul
Alas alas for you lawyers and pharisees
Ave Maria
Go tell, tell it on the mountain
When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
I'm gonna tell you how it's gonna be, you're gonna give your love to me,
Some people go to school tryin' to learn how to teach
And so this is Christmas, and what have you done?
When the evenin' sun goes down you're gonna find me hangin' 'round...
What child is this who lay to rest on Mary's lap is sleeping?
Sing. Sing a Song. Sing out loud. Sing out strong.
When you're down and troubled and you need some loving care
Day by day, day be day, oh dear Lord three things I pray
You may be the ambassador to the King of England or France
I stood on the banks of Jordan one day.
